On the reason. For Sony. Also from the truth. Oh you know. One of the you know I have some food we can grab a bite out of the four we get medical treatment. Listen I'm going to be anybody interested. Good maybe when you have ruined me. Let me see to. Say one thing just very nice. This but this is my son to my right. We have. Some a point you. Know we have the fact that it is a black resort being that I'm in a strange town for the first gave me somewhat more I just psychological. And other words not knowing whether you run it's a hassle a rejection or a sense that a rejection you know was off my Dad what are you going to have the battle your way in the joint or something of. This paper I was reading a story about three sales they have to be black assemble history salesman happen to stop. A white neighborhood to pop a consequence it was available space and it was near the beach that they were going to know they were only going to the beach for a little bit of relaxing. According to this article they were chased from the beach by a group of like they were trying to make it back to their call. The call was last natural don't have time to look for the keys to get in for the trip they went in different directions. One of them was beaten very badly with sticks and pipes. And. We're relating going into a new area and not being aware of this type of for thing you can get murdered. The give me your body giving the reason. For star my ever experience racial prejudice on a personal basis we had come back from we can pass all young Marines going back brace yourself for his going are we waiting for orders body else is waiting on it's up to this great. Finally want to guys in the group you know also you know waitress zero. Dollars for us from the high stakes or your has gone left the line let's say on the immediate less fun for weapons for the. States or bodies or somebody else that when one of the many and I reply was we don't serve niggas here. That was the first time ever listen to Will. Racial prejudice to the point with cut school deep. It was a combination of. Perhaps a fright. Rage. Shame I don't know how to help him react. By his kids who were in the street they really don't get the guns we don't burn down. Then when I go to shop it's not that they're not talking. To go the power structure in this country is so well established and so strong. That unless you weren't from within and you won't change you won't change it by force and violence because this is the more they in this instance the power of being in this is the moment to do I have a feeling though I've been a sellout then says No I don't see me selling. What I did do I feel this menace that not only myself but hopefully. By influencing them do the same. I don't say I don't see him saying that time when White come first they have not overreact when they had not meant as a child I have memories. That you just. Write impose I told him since mean a comp I say white concert because they under react. Nah I'm not saying that every way you know go around beating up a black kid was I don't like that will black one I'm not saying everyone I got does that what they don't know black people or they don't know for a reason people you know so first thing that you might see some got drawn while I know. It's not lawful. We want to keep the ones you don't shoot the guy for doing it. And I man can't have. Anything to do at you. OK why don't you woke up like when I was human guy. So I went to cops. And the mind of what everyone. Got its new ones you want to do. A. Lot that's fine though I love the couple's home. How might we come from a little above or simply because the fall of man to drop the man to drop the gun repeatedly and a full pardon of them probably in five. Of the black ops that was shot by the way because they were black and they have uniforms The White Company brain. Oh. OK All right point is this I know myself for fact. There are certain conditions. Branches. All right why why didn't I do believe in the next twenty years you might see one hell of a revolution in this country because it's not only of minorities. It's you is it stuns affect the working class. Perry White and Black the working class white his family just because working class black although the working class black man is the one who really gets it up to but this far as a black man is concerned. Country black man has or is currently not we awaken to the. He's been cheated he's been cheated. We're doing with the so called American Dream was in the pen. Has never really been in June I don't feel that the black white issue will ever be so long as people walk in face of this earth. Grayson revolution seem to be kind of the things that seems that goes in this segment. When your father told the story about. What it gone through as a Marine. Being denied service in the restaurant and what you folks say right now. How do you feel about that how do you feel about that story and. Can I am proud of. And then back on give me a lot like well I'm not black I felt like. I will give men I'm proud of what I am. Do you feel I personally don't feel oppressed to get where I came from me I'll never forget where I came from and who I am and what I am. I'm black and I will always be black. Maybe. I. Do think. Two hundred. Dollars. You want. To put the. Change in him. If you feel like you got to go you better put on much more. I never knew that. The direct. Threat. Why am anyway. Once. Again I don't want ninety percent now we want to save your life. Oh I get the oh oh. Oh. Oh. Oh all right listen bullet. But I saw not only. The money. I'm going to. Do you don't want to go to high school. Sure. Why don't you want to go now. I mean were you afraid of. No I mean listen to. The moment. When you run alone. Just me look up now let him see here. Like up and down I don't see a little bit. That's right you don't keep them in a couple times during sleep. OK. Cemetery are legal here. But Terry for Iraq. That's it. Tally for better. The. Socialite. We mean you made. My. First. Name. Yeah. No. One. Can there. Again. Tell me one how late. And very. Little. To. Talk about. My forty four men. If. You feel anger because you know his late want is home and I know it seems to disappear is not there anymore. It's like a. Spell. As somebody cancerous power over you when you when it's on the left. You sit. You see the and. You do the AT THE of you for the few the in you through the roof to. The in the. Blood. Colobus broken down into words can describe. Can pick people I love. The way American historic fiction a piece of the English language the time slots left section to stand for another person a strong writing something. Financially as a family. History with someone to hear. Your mate are the only true honor. Love the snow in his homeland especially first. Love camping happy for you have to love can people get around to it. Yes we can to find out and get people up. And say. I'm doing a side of the crowd the the. Way. The and. The and. The. Very very evil. The we also. Have a backup just. They don't. The is not. The play when it's over. The now. To show you how moderate. Islam how often. It can go on much of. The sound. Much. Else. You are one. OK. You know in the first part and I think you've made the point that you want to spend more time at home and here we see a time when you make a choice not to be there now tell me about that I would like to see more of the family together I mean not only pagan but the all over you know yet because of the way I feel about the jobs than the the personnel on the job there are other times when you make the decision to join these guys. Relaxation and the words it's sort of like like a loyalty type of funny. Well hey you know the guys are going on for a couple beers after work and think I'll go and join them you know what about the line at the end. It can't go on much longer. And I wondered about that myself even though when I was talking about but point I don't recall exactly one of the one of the like is that even though. They want to say I'm. Not like you are having an affair and then you thought about it what would it sound like on film. Nobody else gets that impression is there anything that you learned about yourselves and watching them well it wouldn't be found myself but it didn't make me. All this put it this way I'm a little more aware now of the type of situation that my husband can get into at the street when he leaves home. Like it's different to have to tell me the story but it's one thing to actually see tension in the fight and then be yelling the crowd I mean it really really gave me a lot to think about why you do this on the first but it's occurred to me when we were making a decision about this. It would give him again we get back to the black and white issue again it's to give white America a chance to see how blacks live both from blacks live on what the value is actually already right here say that we're striving for the same thing the thing you. Say you would quibble with or change it. I would be at the bar. Love it but this is ridiculous. No. No. I know. Where you have not the army. See. The wrong. With. My. Head on the way. Most men of violence. Most men. It. For maybe the regime doing that but most men most of the lives of based. We try to repress that same violence. A great deal say they were civilized we look around at some of the things and then do. We have to realize that when I still live at home. I do. They could pass and if we screen violence for instance. If the circumstances were such were and with me of the other guy on the street and then a confrontation is. Often said to say perpetrator. Speed up to go to. The down. The shot the shot the crash the the. The the the you. I feel that I'm quite fortunate. Because I have a husband that loves me. I have kids that I know but care for me and concerned about me it makes me quite happy to know that this among the Long Island Railroad and the trains as a laser One reason of my family become concerned and I feel that I can thank god because I'm very happy and if I had to do all over again I would do it the same way I wouldn't change a thing. We've known each other in twenty two years we've been married eighteen of those twenty two years. That my love for her but. It was not the mission. If anything has gotten stronger however. However good to. See. You know what the new. It's the. County the county. The now the. The mouse is. We're standing by with the Robert George family film ready to roll.

It's called Laurel to Bob is a policeman and he's assigned to one of the poorest parts of Brooklyn a neighborhood called Bedford Stuyvesant. Peggy works for a major insurance company in still another New York in the sky scraper on Park Avenue. We've made a film about their lives but now we're doing something quite different with it.

The sherry the number. The but now. They can actually change the fleet went through the tape this in changed Anyone wanna bet. You have a brother let's get it together come up front for. It's going.

Good about it. Right now if we see each other say. If we're doing good because I'm leaving. This coming year thing of leaving no trying to get a caller you're trying to get a call on a child mealtime and I miss not being able to sit down and talk to you say when I come home from work when you come home from work in the evening hours on Saturday was around for you to do like it was a meeting. Yes. I think. That was from the best. One for just this when she said to head to worry about. Taking I'm interested about your working what does it mean to you it means. A little extra things in the house that we want that we don't have to wait for in other words if we buy see something I say well I like that couch I liked that chair I don't have to wait for it. Why did you decide to go back to work but I decided to go back to work because the kids were. In school all day they didn't require. My constant supervision anymore and they had their own so the friends they were taking off this place and that place I found myself alone most of the time. Everyone would come home and they would talk about the activities of the day and I had nothing to talk about I was very dull and I didn't like it and I'm not a type of person that makes friends very easily. I found myself in the house all the time and it became very boring and I became quite depressed over. The bright used to have. Periods of just cry and I mean nothing physically wrong with me but just crying for no apparent reason at all and it was the depiction that was getting to me and that's when I went back to work it became a challenge been doing something and not only money but being able to accomplish something in. Just to see for myself if I could do it by we would you want your son there to be a priest with. Their if you like to see him. You would not know I would mess there because we're in about one coming home every night you have to worry about to make it home every night I don't think I could take it. I'm of our police and the ground being one if you don't come out your fridge Yeah. So you're afraid to or to of for Bobby. When your phone rings and he said work. A little frightened to answer it because you don't know what's going to be something you live with. To live with it. I was me. I. Know like you can see them in your. Them and They wouldn't you know like. When they were. The same left on the you. The it. Is. His way. Much effort to life so. I would never leave. This really hard. The so you don't. Want to go out the bit on the street. You want to see. I guess you don't happen to us but you. Tell a story the most. Part of close a tight. Ship of everybody I think it could be. Working like that. Relaxed around people but I think to to his job I have noticed a change in him that he's suspicious of everybody you know the worst terrorist suspects first. Mover. Degree or we just from only lose our. Parents are from the. Coast of all fathers do this. But I was going. To be like maybe. If I came home to talk to a mother I was pregnant. Well we talked about service for. Just talked. With that was socially with the top really top of. My Has. She said that she would. Be able to have abortions. Really think we would keep the baby. This issue of how she could. Because the to new school told me like. A dirty word you could talk about it was like a no no in the house. She said as she always was I trying to be different from her parents. Everyday. They are now. They want to bring us up a little difficult. And. Sex is open conversation. We have drive to raise them to relate to us. What ever the subject whatever the conversation maybe you tell us about my father he didn't think much of giving kids a voice in things as far as things concerned he was always brought up to believe that the Jews were seen and not heard. My father was very very strict my parents to do something you never questioned but my parents wanted you to do anything with the let's go to the store do anything they were asked to well Sister Bob would you do such a thing for me and is only want to ask you given its Yes if you say no you know you would get a laugh of course the mouth still had to do it and my father's type person we did see him we love them but we're also afraid very much so very much so where I can. Read on one thing. You know you find. A religion always you're. Not going to. Give me the this. Year olds and say tractor trailer this fall during World War two He didn't have much time to even just to relax around the house because he might come home with a morning Thursday night he was back on a ruling on that might be on much of it we could assume. You mean the savvy want to take me. With them for my face. The fact that I have not had the I've tried to. Fire off my father's debts me go down to see Gray's automatically the so trying to get I was trying to keep from breaking my back when I thought. That the that. The direction that it was great for the. Flat your back flat against a wall is a standard why punching your face any normal kid is going to move right. Grandma this is though is you know why way it is then because. We were taught survival at a very early age I mean really when you turn around you come home from work. And there almost is on we all thought. That on the road on the show tonight. Well what do you want to. Raise a little more strict for the day when I wanna cry so I don't believe. Honestly. This is a home that's where we were enough for his face the trend is in the home. Family. People don't do the things they have been doing it in years and this is why we have so much crime does my belief we had to live paycheck to seven dollars a week seven then the family and say I don't know. But I give my wife was the one that kept the points things together sometime A good so this is. One of the one thing I want Israel. To be brought in this morning. I renewed my wife a response for these for them being in this well and if I. Put I really. Never quit. We've been married forty seven and I'm still here. Dad can be severe. At least growing and when the small one he wanted to be in on the situation but he had little time for self pity. Well I restrict it straight if I hadn't had the type of parents that I do have. Those who say you know which direction in life I minded thinking. Your daughter was talking about the suspicious father she has you can bury your head. What about in. The field call the suspensions father I think absolutely right. I and suspicion of anyone but you in the film really. Hold you down a little bit Demi he has a feeling that his suspicion. I do it to. Their holes of soon as we kind of trapped so we like it or you can get out. But. Everything has to be about the room when I'm out in the hallways now I can. Get in there but I quite. Agree. I'd like to talk about what Karen we're talking about when they're walking down the road the missions. That they could be more open with you folks about about sex that there could be discussed now has it been discussed in the home to what degree. Well. We have discussed sex. From their first question when they were very little and I never believed in telling the kids a lot about it nothing was held back and to this day we still talk about anything they want to talk about we'll talk about it. What about premarital sex as that are so obvious and what is your well I don't like it I personally don't like it but. If it should have been I'm sure they wouldn't run home and tell me but if let's say one of them became pregnant because of it we would talk about it I would. Throw them out of the house or anything like that I don't think I would do that but I would try and find out why did it happen why because I feel the main reason that we have such open discussions is to prevent this type of thing. This is a hypothetical question but what if they wanted to for instance go on birth control pills would you help them to do the same with they were having a steady relationship with a young man no I would not know I would not because I would be in this and saying well go ahead. Everything is open. Have your fun. No I would know they are living on food. And a sense on the the parents of you'll point respectable people if they comes a time their life where they want to go on birth control pill will they want a steady relationship for they want to and you know engage in pretty nigh as I say fine but make sure the first of all of the legal age and.
